Andrew Haining

2014 ~ 1st Division Senior Best & Fairest (Chandler Medalist)

2014 ~ Team of the Year ~ Interchange

Andrew started in Under 16's and played his first senior game as an 18 year old in 2008.  Andrew had the opportunity to play some games with Eastern Ranges but returned to Montrose later in that year.  Andrew has now played 122 Senior games and carried the ruck duties for majority of these games.

Andrew continues to improve each year with multiple TOTY selection being achieved.  His on and off field leadership has contributed hugely to the success of the team over the last 4 years.

We look forward to seeing Andrew develop further over the next few years and hopefully a Club Best & Fairest awaits him.

Well done Andrew on winning the 2014 Chandler Medal.

Michael (Barney) Edwards

2014 ~ 1st Division Reserves Best & Fairest

Barney has been a club legend who this year played his life membership game for the club.  After returning late last year from a knee injury Barney played 13 reserve games and 2 senior games this year.  Barney played consistent footy that rewarded him with Senior selection and also had a big influence in the reserve team playing finals in 1st division.

Congratulations Barney on winning the league Best & Fairest
